Fairness is foundation of collaborative divorce process

Not every couple that decides to end its marriage will be able to succeed in the collaborative divorce process. In fact, only California couples that are committed to working together may find the path useful, while others who struggle to find common ground with their soon-to-be ex-partners may prefer to utilize traditional divorce proceedings through the courts.

Some benefits from alternate paths to divorce

Conflict can be the root of a couple's problems and is often a contributing factor to their decision to divorce. It does not, however, have to be a driving force as the partners untangle their lives from each other and work to end their marriage. In California, couples may use Collaborative Process to bring their unions to their ends and the non-litigious process can have some unexpected benefits.

What is collaborative law and how does it work in divorce?

Traditional divorce in the legal system is often a confrontational process that drains the parties of their energy and taxes their emotions as they struggle to make decisions about the end of their marriages. This difficult and sometimes overwhelming process is only one of the paths that a Californian may find themselves on if they should choose to pursue divorce. In California, divorce participants may elect to end their marriages through collaboration rather than confrontation.
